Chargers Place CB Jason Verrett On Injured Reserve, Promote LB Nick Dzubnar

Update:

The Los Angeles Chargers announced that they have placed CB Jason Verrett on the season-ending injured reserve and promoted LB Nick Dzubnar in a corresponding roster move.

Adam Schefter reports that Chargers CB Jason Verrett has decided to undergo season-ending knee surgery and will be placed on the injured reserve.

The Chargers activated him from their physically unable to perform list back in August and he was active for the Week 1 opener when injured his knee. It is worth mentioning that he was also placed on the season-ending injured reserve last season with an ACL injury.

Verrett, 25, was taken with the No. 25 overall pick back in 2014 by the Chargers. He was in the final year of his four-year, $7.889 million contract and set to make a base salary of $860,000 for the 2017 season when the Chargers picked up his fifth-year option a few months ago.

The fifth-year option will run the Chargers $8,526,000 million for the 2018 season but is guaranteed only for injury and won’t prevent them from working on a long-term extension over the next year.

In 2016, Verrett was limited to appearing in just four games and recorded 13 tackles, one interception and three pass defenses for the Chargers. His year ended after he suffered a torn left ACL and was subsequently placed on season-ending injured reserve.
